The India Acetonitrile market is anticipated to grow at a steady CAGR of 4.81% by FY2030. Balaji Amines Limited has planned brownfield expansion of Acetonitrile plant with a capacity of 15 thousand tonnes which will start from mid FY2024 till end of FY2025.

Acetonitrile is a colourless organic nitrile solvent with a dipole moment of 3.84D, which enables it to dissolve in a wide range of ionic and nonpolar compounds. It is primarily produced as a byproduct of the production process of acrylonitrile. It has a high degree of chemical stability, is a powerful solvent, and is readily soluble in water. As a result, it has numerous uses in a variety of industries, including pharmaceuticals, automotive, agriculture, etc. Other applications like battery, acrylic nail removers, fragrances, extraction of fatty acids from vegetable and animal oils also make use of acetonitrile. Acetonitrile is used to manufacture antibiotics due to its advantageous physical and chemical characteristics, including low viscosity and low freezing/boiling points. Additionally, Acetonitrile is used as a solvent in liquid chromatography, which influences the interaction between sample component and adsorbent during the separation process of chiral systems.

Growing demand for the recrystallization of drugs in the pharmaceutical industry is expected to fuel the growth of Acetonitrile in India. Rising generic pharmaceutical manufacturing activities across the globe and high consumption of agrochemicals are anticipated to attract healthy demand for Acetonitrile. Furthermore, supportive government initiatives and plans including the National Food Security Mission (NFSM) which aim to increase the production of rice, wheat, pulses, and coarse cereals are expected to propel agrochemical demand, which is further projected to escalate the growth of Acetonitrile in India. With rapid technological advancements in High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), the technique has gained prominence in the analytical industry, which has increased the overall Acetonitrile demand in India. In the petrochemical industry, different acetonitrile grades are frequently employed in extractive distillation and separation of C4-hydrocarbons and olefin-diolefin combinations, which further contributes to the Acetonitrile demand across the nation.

Based on region, the India Acetonitrile Market is segregated into North, South, East, and West. Currently, West India has been dominating the market followed by North and South India. Gujarat and Maharashtra are the key consumers of acetonitrile owing to the presence of numerous pharmaceutical manufacturers like Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. And Cipla Ltd.

Based on end-use, the India Acetonitrile market is segregated into Solvent, Chemical Intermediate, Pharmaceutical, Photographic Film, and Others. As of FY2023, the Solvent industry is dominating the India Acetonitrile market with a market share of 65% and is expected to retain its dominance even in the forthcoming years. Due to progressive healthcare facilities and drugs, the pharmaceutical industry is anticipated to bolster the India Acetonitrile market in the upcoming years.
